Living Your Dreams
by Dr. Kelly Psychic Counselor
Too many of us live in a “bad reality” state of mind. All it takes is flipping that little switch in your mind. Whenever I feel down or want to throw in the towel in regards to my life path and dreams, I know that it's just my negative thinking switch that's on! Trust me, sometimes it's in the on position for a long time! But, I also know that thoughts are just thoughts and in no way reality unless I make them so. That allows me to flip the switch the other way and begin thinking positively which keeps me moving forward.
I do an average of one thousand readings per year. Nearly everyone has some dream in mind that they feel is totally out of reach, yet they can’t let it go! They want to lose weight, to be in a better relationship, to have a more stable financial life, to start their own business, to go back to school, to eat healthier. Many of these people have carried around the dream for a very, very long time. And you know what? The only thing stopping them from achieving their dreams is themselves! Yes, we all have obstacles, but nobody is ever backed completely into a corner with no way to move. There’s always at least a tiny bit of room for movement forward.
How to move forward when you’re feeling crushed under the weight of your problems? Trust me, I know what it’s like to be in a deep, deep hole of debt, health problems, and no food in the house with kids to support. You get to a place where you can’t possibly see the light at the end of the tunnel. Even if you did, you’d think it was a train coming to run you down! Now, you have two choices: Spend the rest of your life buried under your problems and dream your days away, or buckle up your courage and determination and change things around! I don’t know about you, but no matter how hard it is to create a better life, I’d rather try than admit defeat!
Buy a notebook and grab a pen, this is your first step to having a better life. Give it an empowering title like, “My life from this moment on”, or, “From dreams to reality.” I titled mine, “This is who I am.” It may sound cheesy, but having that title on your notebook helps to imprint this new life into your mind since you’ll read it each time you pick the tablet up.
Getting down to work. On the first page make a list of where your life isn’t working. On the next page make a list of your dreams. Now…each consecutive page will hold the title of one problem and one dream. So, one page may be titled: Getting out of debt. Another may be titled: Going back to school. Under each title brainstorm ways to overcome the problem or make the dream into reality.
For instance, a few years ago I was living on only $900 a month and had 5 kids to feed, bills to pay, etc. I titled one page: Ways to bring in extra money. I listed as many things I could think of to make extra money without having to go out and get a regular 9-5 job and leave my kids alone all day. (I home school my kids.) I’m an avid book collector, so I figured I could sell them on Amazon. I also went to library sales and bought books for pennies on the dollar and sold them on the site as well. And, I started offering psychic readings on eBay. Great! That got me out of the financial hole I was in! Of course, each of those ideas had their own small steps such as creating ads on eBay, but those two ideas were the quickest, easiest, and cheapest way to begin bringing in money.
What about dreams? I had always wanted to be a multi-published author, and had written romances since I was in my 20‘s, though had never gotten published. Those manuscripts sat collecting dust for 15 years until I found myself divorced for a second time. Being on my own again had me dredging up all sorts of dreams! So, I made a list of ways to get published. I was far too eager--and broke!--to go the traditional publishing route. Printing out manuscripts, paying for postage, waiting eons for a reply…So I did extensive research into eBook publishers and sent some query letters to the top ones on my list. Within the last year alone I’ve signed nine book contracts!
Whether getting out of a rut, overcoming a problem, or making a dream come true, all it takes is determination, courage, and a step-by-step plan. The biggest obstacle to achieving what you set out to do is lack of focus. By breaking big projects or problems down into small steps you can overcome just about anything, and begin living the life of your dreams!
